Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
thingtech (http://www.thingtech.com) – an Atlanta, GA company announced today that it has deployed tracIT – powered by thingtech – to Crawford County, GA for real-time vehicle and asset tracking. The solution utilizes devices installed in County vehicles to track the location and status of vehicles for real time insight by management and to improve decision making regarding asset utilization and maintenance. “We are very excited to partner with Crawford County leadership and staff to help improve fleet and asset tracking and utilization. Pat and his staff do a tremendous job and we’re excited that our solution will play a role in streamlining service delivery for residents of Crawford County.” says Brian Corcoran, President of thingtech.
Crawford County replaced their existing GPS solution in favor of the thingtech Platform. Offering a unique GPS Vehicle Tracking, Telematics, and Work Order system in one, thingtech allows for customers to not only track vehicles, but to determine if the vehicle is where it should be based on the work it's scheduled to perform. The platform also provides an opportunity to streamline existing cost allocation processes to determine how much and where the County is spending money to maintain County property - all in one, single integrated management system.
Real-time location data has become a necessary part of the toolkit to properly manage fleets, mobile workers, and budgets. Often GPS solutions are stand-alone systems that require users to sift through data and make assumptions to properly manage fleets and field crews. However, the thingtech platform easily extends to manage custom data and to combine a location-based system with other business needs and processes, thereby providing additional value beyond standard GPS systems.
“thingtech understood that we didn’t just want a GPS system – it had to provide more value for us to make the switch. We now have better data, have reduced our costs, and will have full view of our operations and a sound system for making decisions.” says Pat Kelly, Crawford County Manager.
